Conan O'Brien Mocks Joe Biden's Non-Answer About Running for President: Video
"Talk show host Conan O`Brien poked fun at Vice President Biden this week for using the double negative when asked if he plans to run for president in 2016.
On an Amtrak train last week, Biden was asked that question in an interview on CNN.
`There may be reasons I don`t run but there`s no obvious reason for me why I think I should not run,` Biden said."
Joe Biden is no George W. Bush when it comes to uttering sentences that aren`t grammatically correct; he only lapses into double negatives when speaking the truth is inconvenient or embarrassing.
Biden should have answered the CNN reporter honestly and stated:
There`s only one reason why I haven`t declared that I`m running for president in 2016, I`m waiting on Hillary Clinton. If she announces that she`s not running, I will immediately get my buffoonery on and book speaking engagements in Iowa and New Hampshire.
The Democratic Party is not in a good situation: Their best hopes for 2016 are a septuagenarian with no brains and a sexagenarian with no sex appeal.
Biden should have done what he does best and plagiarized LBJ`s " I shall not seek, and I will not accept" speech.
